Full sun-part shade; occasional irrigation A low-growing shrub to 10-16in. tall and spreading to 3-6ft wide. It is a very compact and dense plant with small glossy deep green leaves that nearly hide the attractive cinnamon red stems with exfoliating bark. Small white flowers appear in mid-winter through spring and are followed by red fruit- flowering is somewhat sparse on this cultivar. Good as a groundcover between a lawn and more drought tolerant or as a non-walkable substitute.
